Now Trending: Cupcakes!

So I’m just gonna be upfront — today’s my birthday so I decided I should do something cake related.  One of my friends really loves cupcakes and my other friend has decided to use cupcakes for her wedding.  They’re kind of a big deal.  And so is Sprinkes, a luxurious cupcake bakery located in the Gold Coast on 50 E Walton Street (between Michigan Ave & Rush St.).  They have loads of amazing flavors and you can get them delivered or just order a whole bunch of them for $3.50 a piece.  I realize that’s not cheap, but they’re also no ordinary cupcakes.  In addition to their wide variety of flavors they have gluten-free and even vegan options which means you really can go with any of your friends!

My friend who’s getting married explained to me that they have a cake cutting fee of $3 per person unless they want someone from the party to cut the cake themselves.  Or you could just do cupcakes and Bam! Done!  You can get a variety of flavors and people can just grab them.  I always approve of giving your guests options and I think it’s an excellent idea.  No one wants to have guests work during a celebration to save money, and while $3 doesn’t seem like a ton, when you’re considering adding that to your per person cost for even as few as 100 people.  Well I’d rather put that $300 towards better wine than an evenly-sliced piece of cake myself.
So go ahead, indulge today and go eat a cupcake — for me!
